FACETASM x Levi’s® capsule collection

FACETASM x Levi’s® capsule collection “MUTATION” - Spring/Summer 2020
With Levi’s® collaborations, the common approach is to
take a Levi’s® icon and give it a fresh new twist.
In the case of Japanese brand FACETASM, designer Hiromichi Ochiai
decided to take that phrase literally. With “MUTATION”
being the concept of this collaboration, the focus
lies on Levi’s® most iconic items – jeans, trucker jackets,
western shirts, and graphic tees. In combination with
FACETASM’s playfulness and innovative techniques, this
has resulted in a special Levi’s® x FACETASM capsule collection.
WIDE & SLIM 501 ONE OF THE ICONIC FACETASM STYLES MIXED WITH LEVI’S SIGNATURE 501
FACETASM is well known in the fashion world for their
philosophical and deconstructive approach to design,
creating clothes that are both conceptual and wearable,
masculine and feminine. Often it’s about taking something
apart, re-engineering it, and putting it back together in a
strange and fascinating new way. For Levi’s® x FACETASM,
that conceptual approach mainly involved mutilating
and twisting a range of Levi’s Truckers—like adding
FACETASM’s signature silhouette to the Type I and Type
III trucker, transforming a classic biker jacket into a new
‘Biker’s Trucker’. The collection also includes the shredded,
deconstructed, and tied-together (with deerskin
leather) Linked Trucker, and the Wide & Slim Trucker, that
incorporates two unique patterns, creating different trucker
sizes on the left and the right.
BIKER’S TRUCKER A MIX BETWEEN A CLASSIC BIKER’S JACKET AND TYPE 1 TRUCKER
Jeans, too, get the twisted treatment, with a
deconstructed/reconstructed Linked 501 to match the
Linked Trucker. A Wide & Slim 501 to match the Wide &
Slim Trucker and a Twisted Denim jean with ultra twisted
seams, the Wide & Slim pants and the Twisted Denim
being two of FACETASM’s iconic original designs.
SAWTOOTH WESTERN SHIRT FEATURING FACETASM’S ICONIC KNIT RIB STRIPE
The collection also includes FACETASM's mutilated take
on two Levi’s® Western shirts—the Sawtooth Western
and the Distressed Western, which features FACETASM’s
iconic rib on the back, merging the two brands’
signature looks into one item. As well as a truly unique
Type I vest that was derived from the Levi’s® Type I
Trucker. There’s also a graphic tee and a patchwork
hoodie in the mix and, a veritable treasure trove of small
and eye-catching details—elements like already-torn
Levi’s® Jacron patches, hang tags cut in half and tied
together by cords, and creative approaches to packaging.
The FACETASM x Levi’s® capsule collection of 15 unisex
items, all in indigo, will be released globally in March 2020.
LINKED TRUCKER (MEN’S) SHREDDED, DECONSTRUCTED AND TIED-TOGETHER (WITH DEERSKIN LEATHER)
FACETASM designer Hiromichi Ochiai; “As a designer,
I’m very happy to do this collaboration with Levi’s.
At FACETASM we are always fascinated by the history of design.
Of course Levi’s has a long history with denim and it has
been very inspiring to visit the headquarters archives at San Francisco.
For me it’s very valuable to start with something
that has such a long tradition and try to innovate it in order to give it new value.
Working together with the Levi’s staff in San Francisco
has been a great experience, they have a lot of knowledge 
and are super innovative when it comes to denim.
Please enjoy this collaboration, a “mutation” of both history and innovation.”
